All NBA contracts are backloaded, but the #s posted by the OP are not permitted by the NBA's Collective Bargaining Agreement. Again the max annual raises that can be put in a contract is 10.5%.

Year 1 - $3 mil
Year 2 - $3.315 mil
Year 3 - $3.663 mil
Year 4 - $4.048 mil
Year 5 - $4.473 mil
Total - $18.499 mil

So the max amount the contract can be if it starts at $3 mil and lasts 5 years is approximately $18.5 mil.
